Netbackup Upgrade from 6.5.6 to 7.5
I want to upgrade my netbackup from 6.5.6 to Netbackup 7.5.
I have 1 master-cum-media server and 2 media servers in my netbackup environment.
OS of Master-cum-media server is : HP-UX 11.23
OS of Media 1 server is : HP-UX 11.23
OS of Media server 2 is : Linux 5.8 (64 bits).
We know that HP-UX 11.23 is not supported as master or media server in Netbackup 7.5 version.
So we thought of making our media server which is Linux 5.8 (64 bits) as our Master server and keep the other 2 media servers on netbackup 6.5.6.
Can we do this? Is there any challenge or risk involved?
We have BCV, Vmware, DB and NDMP backups in our environment. Will this setup work on these?
Also, we have Overland Neo series 4000 in our environent with master and slave concept. Symantec and overland says that they have not tested this library on Netbackup 7.5 so they are unsure wheather it will work or not. And in Symantec matrix compatibility list it shows that Overland Neo series 4000e is supported but not Neo Series 4000.
I don't know whether they are same or different?
We don't have approval to buy new hardware at the moment so we need to utilize two (2) HP-UX 11.23 media server to be kept on Netbackup 6.5.6
And, Overland Neo series 4000 as our library.
Please provide your valuable feedback and i will be highly obliged if anyone from symantec can provide their input.
